The Brewers have entered September limping, with a five game losing streak, but they simply have too much talent to continue playing this way for long. With a majority of their games in the division, they will run off a week of perfect baseball to quiet all doubters.

Khris Davis is only in his first major league season, but he has shown tremendous power. Last year, he was one of the biggest sluggers in the second half, and this season, he has continued to showcase his power. With a home run on the first day of the month, he is now tied for the team lead. A hot month will help him take home the team title.

Jonathan Lucroy has become the face of the Brewers, and the team's best offensive player. This season, he leads the league in doubles and has become an elite offensive and defensive catcher. He is already mentioned in MVP consideration, and the final month will be his final stamp on a great season.

Over the past six seasons when the Brewers have needed a big at-bat, it has come from Ryan Braun. He came through with big home runs in 2008 to put the team into the playoffs. In 2011, he hit the game-winning home run to help them clinch their first NL Central division title. This year, as games get bigger, Braun will again be at his best.

When it is all said and done, the Brewers will end the season on top of the division. With 22 of their final 26 against the NL Central, they will take care of business and put the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates away. They have played above expectations all season, and will continue to surprise into October.
